QUESTION: Does anyone know how strict the faculty of arts is with the dean's list requirement of 83%? I entered finals this semester with a cumulative average of around 82.5%. Would they round up or is it no dean's list for me?

  1. You're probably out. Only the best students deserve to go on the dean's list (as it should be).

  2. What exactly do you get for graduating on the dean's list?

  4. Shit that sucks, same here I graduated math with 79.6% and those bastards didn't put me in dean's list.

    You know what I did? Delayed my damn graduation and took a birdy and killed it

    2. Well I did it because I PRIORITIZED it. I worked hard in my uni career and I screwed up a term or 2 but overall I worked very hard, and I want that recognised. Aint nothing wrong with that

      At this moment I am working at a place that is completely in line with my field (actsci) and I couldn't be happier

    3. You want that recognized? Tough luck. Nobody gives a shit but your parents.

    4. Look its a personal thing, my employr saw that my performance on my good terms and exams was good enough so he gave me an opportunity at entry level.

      But this was a personal goal.

  6. OP here. Dean's list doesn't mean much to me I was just curious. I have one semester when I suffered an injury that is dragging down my average, but I'm off to professional school in the fall so it doesn't matter.

    1. Why are you being so rude? OP was just asking. I'd personally want to know as well if I was in that situation

  8. TIL /r/uwaterloo is much more informative than omguw. Nicer as well.

    Something about completely anonymity makes people assholes. Either that or there's an overrepresentation of neckbeard assholes on omguw.

    1. Not 9 or 9a, but I guess I'll have to settle with making (just barely under) 6 figures right after undergrad.

      Tough life I know
